From small beginnings.......

this tiny fragile bud
struggling hard
to hold it`s head
towards the sun
each day growing
stronger and taller

until one day the moment
when this bud changes
and for this to happen
its opens up slowly
tentatively revealing
the secrets held within

a splash of vivid colour
can be seen from inside
as its sepals move aside
so all can be exposed
such passionate reds
lighting up the woods

as time moves along
the bud opens wider
its velvety petals
curl further to reveal
the heart of this flower
its beauty for all to see

The wonder of an opening bud, revealing the soft bright coloured petals of sheer beauty....!
